This demonstration shows parts of the Ambient Wood experience project which has taken place in an English woodland setting during the past year. The project provides a playful learning experience for schoolchildren on a digitally enhanced field trip. A WiFi network was installed in the woods to enable communication with PDAs, and a collection of innovative devices was designed to aid interactive exploration of the woods. Most of the devices that were employed are available for conference attendees to use along with a facilitator�s terminal. A video of the schoolchildren using the devices in the woodland is also shown.
